Learning Objectives

The course intends to encourage the student to be able to (a) read, analyze and interpret the literary aesthetic work in relation to its time and tradition; (b) to know, with critical mastery of current methodologies, the issues, currents and works - both through the life of the authors and through the activity of magazines - that have characterized Italian literature from the second half of the nineteenth century to our own days; (c) describe and discuss the "canon" through a careful methodological reflection on the role of criticism in the system of contemporary culture; (d) investigate the relationship between literature, culture, politics and publishing in contemporary literary production and within individual works

Program

Critical and methodological issues related to the study of the discipline 

Analytical path of modern and contemporary Italian literature, with a reasoned choice of texts from 1861 to the present day, arranged in an overall historical-cultural framework

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Shit descriptors The student must demonstrate that he has acquired the following skills: a) reading, analysis and interpretation of a literary text, using knowledge and concepts that allow him to reason according to the specific logic of the discipline, but also to exceed the threshold, which risks closing the speech in a self-referential context; b) placing the work in its historical-cultural horizon and in dialectical conflict with tradition, identifying values ??and strengths, but also limits and criticalities; c) discussion on the themes that characterize contemporary artistic work in relation to its reception over the centuries and in different regions; d) reflection on the ambiguity of the new 'critical' mediation functions that the society of communication and information entail, as opposed to the specific task of the historical-materialistic, sociological, anthropological and critical-aesthetic judgment that the reader has the right to exercise against the pervasiveness of the entertainment society.
